When is someone going to stand up and champion these issues for us in a courtroom?
When gamers start to care about the issues. They don't. Most gamers just go buy a game, play it, and then go about their lives. They don't care about DRM, and they definitely don't care about politics.
Yeah exactly. Something to keep in mind that for SCOTUS to rule on something, that means someone has to have taken it all the way there. That someone has to have "standing".
So for games, a gamer would have to sue and take it all the way to supreme court. Taking something to supreme court can cost a lot of money, I would guess hundreds of thousands of dollars at the minimum. So you'd have to have a gamer who cared enough and had enough extra cash (or backers with the cash) to take it all the way.
IANAL, and these comments aren't addressed to anyone in particular.
